Dream Vacation Part 1

Those of you that have been following me for a long time know I post almost everyday and for me to go almost a week without posting is insane.

So why?

I went on vacation. Doesn’t everyone go on vacation for their week of mardi gras break. Oh wait you don’t get a week off for mardi gras. Sucks to be you.

I knew you would all be beyond jealous because not only did I go on vacation, but I went to everyone’s dream location. Alabama. Most dream their entire lives of a vacation on the coast of Alabama. Lucky for you I have been planning a series of blogs to show you through photo and story, so it will be as if you were there.

Part One: The Beach

The beach in Alabama is white sand, crystal blue water, and beautiful tranquility.

Even on a cloudy cold day it is truly breathtaking. Just the wind coming in off the ocean calms the soul. I have often wondered if the ocean breeze was whispering sweet nothings to my soul when I wasn’t looking.


You could see the simple tracks of birds covering the sand. A quiet gesture to the untouched place.

Do you notice anything amiss? Look closer. From our condo I could easily see 8 oil rigs. EIGHT! It breaks my heart. I am truly saddened that there is little left in this world untouched by greed and money.

I hope someone will stand up for our world and the natural beauty that is left.

  1. I feel it is also so sad that in such tranquil places there is always a disturbance of the greedy world we live in. I live on Oahu right now and you would think it is supposed to be the most relaxing and beautiful place in the world, but the Waikiki beach is contaminated and dirty. There are very few places where you can see wildlife on the island because they are so heavily protected. There is so much pollution on the island and no one realizes it. I hope one day we are able to open our eyes and see what we are doing to our planet and save it before it is too late. Seen Wall-E? That’s what I’m afraid of…

      • Yeah I do like living here. But being from San Fran, my world views are just so different than the locals. I have a separate container for glass and plastics than trash. They just throw everything into the same garbage. It’s really sad. The people are nice, but it’s just not the same. I come from a very diverse area and you would think Hawaii is the same. But, everyone is very set in their ways, especially if they are of Asian culture. Nothing against their culture, they just don’t have any patience or interest in anyone who is not of their same culture. In San Fran, everyone wants to learn and know people of all backgrounds, its just not like that here. So I just keep to myself and be nice to everyone, but I try not to get too involved in anyone’s business. I’m sure the beaches in Alabama are just as nice as Hawaii. Those pics you took were beautiful!

  2. I do agree with the dislike of the oil rigs in the distance, however, they are some great pics. As skeptical as I was about Alabama being a great vacation site, I am no longer. Thank-you
